How to apply for a Town and Gown property?

The general list of properties for the next academic year will be available to view at some stage in January. Exact dates will be released on our facebook page in December.

  • 1. To arrange a viewing you must first of all download, read, complete and return by email the application form along with a note of the property/ies you wish to view.
  • 2. We will forward you the email contact of the current tenants who you need to get in touch with. Arrange a time with them to view and they will give you the number of the property.
  • 3. If you decide you wish to take the property then you should in the first instance email Mike and confirm and then you can telephone. Please note that before we agree a lease we will check the emails to ensure that someone else has not got in before you.
  • 4. You will then need to arrange a meeting with in 7 days to meet and discuss the property and at that meeting we will explain the full workings of the tenancy and what is likely to happen over the next 18 months. You must attend this meeting with the following references:

  • Landlords/halls ref
  • Personal ref
  • Parental guarantee
  • Copy of matriculation card

  • 5. If all goes well at the meeting we would hope to be able to give you all the lease documents. These need to be taken away by you to study and to have an outside party look at. Once this is done please write a list of all your questions and then contact us for the second meeting. You have the lease for a period of 7 days after which we expect you to have set the second meeting.
  • 6. At the second meeting we will cover all your questions and once you are happy we will collect all the signed lease papers, at this stage you are legally bound to the lease and the property is yours for the lease period.

I have known Mike Foote for 10 years during which time he has done sterling service as Letting Agent for over half a dozen Properties in the St Andrews area, on my behalf.
It is no surprise to me that Town and Gown consistently comes out as the most popular Letting Agent in the Town and 'Twal mile roon'.
